Goats rescued from bridge after two days stranded on thin ledge

Two goats proved to be real silly billies when they got stranded for two days on the ledge of a bridge in Montana.

The poor bleeters were plucked to safety by a towering crane after going without food and drink for 48 hours.

They are thought to have wandered onto the railroad ledge in southern Montana at night, then froze once the sun rose and they realised where they were.

The two young females occasionally stepped to the pillar to urinate then returned to the narrower ledge, where they tried to rest their tired legs by tucking them under their bodies for a few seconds, an eye-witness said. The goats are now said to be in a good condition.
